This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself
as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the
scrap heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little
clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself
to making you happy.
— G. B. Shaw, Man and Superman, 1903.
The laurels of history go not to the swift or strong or brave, much less to
the victimized, but to risk-takers who by a combination of goodness and cleverness
tailored to a specific circumstance, succeed in enhancing life.
— "To Appease or Not," 2002.
